Same thing happened to me re brain tumour. Unable to practice yoga yet (2months down the line). I hope to soon.
i had been told my problems were -- migraine, IBS, low hormones due to being post-menopause and eventually cataracts for the loss of vision. Only after cataract surgery failed did they realise there was a brain tumor pressing on the optic nerve. I believe yoga assisted in my health (& sight!) returning to normal after the surgery. As the tumor was large i was warned of pituitary failure. I am doing great, 3 weeks post-op. In 3 more weeks i will return to my yoga practice.
My brother,an avid exercise enthusiast, was diagnosed with Stage 4, glioblastoma of the left frontal brain in February 2010. Since then has had 3 brain surgerys. I'm hoping to help him get into yoga/meditation. Don't know where to start? We live in mlps,Mn. Any suggestions? Thank-you.
I was misdiagnosed by 6 doctors of a brain tumor, the doctors keep telling me that my pain was psycosomatic, and finally a psychiatric resident diagnosed me with a brain tumor, by then the tumor was too big and unable to be totally removed. Yoga and meditation save my life, and help me survive and raise my son alone.....
